Author’s Note: I am really sorry this has taken so long. I had more planned for this chapter, but I wanted to get this part out finally and rhoeysama‘s visit has inspired me to do so - it has been sitting on my laptop for well over a year! Hopefully publishing this will motivate me to finish it out. Thanks for your patience and again I am so so so sorry for what you are about to read.
“Final stop! Republic City!” the porter’s voice cried
out, jolting Lin awake.
Lin’s head popped up from her mother’s lap so suddenly that
she nearly banged Toph’s chin. It was close enough for her mother to feel the
breeze of it and Toph gasped, “Careful there, baby girl.”
“Sounds like it,” Toph nodded, standing.
Lin rubbed her eyes and stretched, catching the setting sun as it glinted
through the station windows.
It was dusk, Monday evening rush hour was just taking hold and the station was
alive with commuters all bustling about with different destinations in mind. In
this moment, seeing all the people in their smart hats and tailored clothing,
babbling on in their Republic City slang, Lin wondered why they would want to
be headed anywhere else.
“It’s good to be home,” she sighed, pulling her bag from its compartment.
